After a whirlwind couple days competing in Wella Trend Vision 2012 at the Round House in London, the best part now is reminiscing about nuances involved in competitions. But more about nuances later…
The beginning started here and here, then here…the behind the scene story for the making of “to create the beautiful interpretation of the Grace trend”. Even though we didn’t make the final in Madrid, it was worth every moment, hard work and dedication. A fantastic experience!

Wella Trend Vision 2012-Dublin, Ireland, next stop London!
Wella Trend Vision 2012-Dublin, Ireland, a little update on Wella’s Trend Vision 2012… without further ado here’s a few photos a long the way. I was one of 6 winners propelled to the next stage, which will be held in London in October 2012.
Our day started promptly at 7:15am in Robert Chambers Salon; around the corner from the Wella Studio. I weaved one last time through the hairstyle, Dermot prepped the make-up, and with a deep breath of enthusiasm off we went. Hands in tow of clothing, shoes, bags, make up, plus everything we didn’t need, Juljia was strutting through Dublin’s back streets; gown, half made-up, hair clips and all. Our look of urgency masking the inevitability that was to compete in Trend Vision 2012. Before we knew it next stop London!
Many thanks for the tireless support to Robert Chambers Salon & the staff at the Wella Studio.
Today, Dermot and I had a great time making all the final preps for the Wella Trend Vision Ireland 2012 at Robert Chambers Salon …it’s all takes place tomorrow, and we’re ready to go and have a good time.

A quiet moment
Tools of the trade
Model arrives & chilling out
Colors of the rainbow..which will it be?
This year I’ve decided to take the plunge in the Wella Trend Vision 2012 Ireland. Although the big day isn’t’ until Monday September 3rd, there’s prepping involved and more important, teamwork.
“TrendVision is like the hair Olympics!” says Wella Professionals Ambassador Nick Berardi. VERY true! So how do you prepare? After reading this, my respectful perspective quickly changed.
Yesterday the day began with a breath of relief when the secret model arrived. The first part of the prep was the haircut, which was really cool to do because it’s a haircut I rarely get to do. I decided to top up my game and pull out the head mannequin because this is what happened meanwhile behind the scenes..…
A few weeks ago I presented my inspirational haircut/colour to my maybe model with a photo, she looked at it simply said, “no way am I wearing that”. I quickly explained “it wouldn’t be exactly like this but a bit more like this, longer here, shorter there” and she still stood in front of me and said “there is no way I am wearing that” In that moment, I knew it was time to go to Sally’s Hair Supply to buy the dreaded mannequin head and execute the precise haircut to convince my most wanted maybe Trend Vision model how stylishly cool this haircut will really be. My pitch was “The Armani of hairstyles, the haircut of a lifetime”…true for both of us. After my mannequin head trials, my presentation was ready for my most wanted maybe Trend Vision model. The big sigh finally came when she saw the finished work and said, “Ok, I’m in, when is it”?
Yesterday morning at Robert Chambers Salon, my ever so talented partner in this years Trend Vision Dermot McHugh and I had our first behind the scenes trial with our model to prepare for the big day. And finally Tamar Chambers Artistic Director of the Robert Chambers Hair Group stopped by to give support and check it all out.
Although it’s all a big secret, here are some photos of getting the party started. More to come.. but later….

Women’s Hair, interpretation-Dublin, when it comes to interpretation in hairdressing, well let’s just say at moments every hairdresser thinks a little differently, which is exactly why it’s such a creative and fantastic industry.
Monday evening I went to the Wella Studio in Dublin to attend an evening of inspiration for the up and coming Wella Trend Vision. And I’m so glad I went.
The 4 Wella Trend Vision categories are Grace + Celeste + Roxy and finally Blaze. Each theme has a lifestyle and attitude that suits a specific trend. Let’s start with Grace who is the essence of nature. Her style has an understated aesthetic composition, while her taste is pure and simple. And her hair color palette is sophisticated beige tones. Celeste is the here and now girl that lives a futuristic lifestyle. Someone who is always on trend with a quest for the newest and latest sensation. Her hair color palette is precision blond with a tonal contrast mixed with gold’s, violets, or even rose gold’s. Roxy is the scene-stealer. She has an inspired Studio 54 style with an influence that looks sleek with fantastic texture and pure style. Her hair color palette is an explosion of berry tones and bougainville tones fused with bright yellows. And finally Blaze, the girl with attitude and the fiery temper. Her hair color palette is intense darkness with color bursts of flamboyant pinks with precisely groomed graphic drama.
The idea of Trend Vision is to bring a theme to life.
Grazie mille to Bruno Giamattei, Dan Spiller and Becci Giacopazzi from the Marc Anthoni Salon for coming to Dublin and all your tireless creativity and inspiration. And much kudos to Cleo, Sinead and Neil at the Dublin Wella Studio for the endless support you give to so many.
